Nice Quiet Campground

Green grass, well spaced concrete pads, and large pecan trees right along the San Saba river. There are full hookups and cable tv. The office is confusing and is down at the golf course office. (Avoid parking in the spaces up against the river and under the pecan trees. A couple of large branches…

Along the River

We camped here 1/31/21 to 2/5/21. Sites were good sized and shaded which was a slight issue for our solar panel but there are other sites without shade. About 200 yards to the little store/office where you can get some WIFI and water is also there. No power or water at sites. We loved the trails…

Nice State Park, But Lacking Amenities by B

My first camping trip in TX, my mistake in going in Hot August. There are no hookups and generators are not allowed. I have an Aliner trailer, and no shade over most of the sites. There is good hiking and you can get to the Colorado river. Pretty long hike (I rode my MTN bike and it was a 45 min…

Great Park

Between the swimming hole and Gorman Falls you have some great views and amazing hiking! Saw some deer and hogs while out hiking on this property. Armadillo are all over the place as well.. Do be aware the cell service is pretty much nonexistent down at the campsites. There was a general store…

Epic beach camping

Wow, such an amazing camping experience! We boondocked with our 36ft motorhome right on the beach.

$12 to get in and stay as much as you’d like. Busy on weekends but very quiet during the week.

They allow driving on the beach here from access #5 and north of it. Watch the tides, best to get in…

Quiet, Rustic, & Beautiful

This is camping the way we like it -- rustic, beautiful and inexpensive.  And, there was no one there in January, despite the state parks being packed!  We had the place completely to ourselves, with the exception of a few fisherman.

For $5 a night you can camp at any one of the dozens of…

  • Each site looks about like this, some with a bit more privacy than others.
  • Gorgeous sunset after a passing winter storm.
  • Great paddling weather!

Beautiful views, challenging hikes

We started our trip by going to Gorman Falls. Hike is pretty steep on the way down - it would probably be hard to do this with little kids (my fur child made things difficult for me). Super beautiful. we walked around at the bottom for a while and found other pretty rock formations and things to…

Great for hikers

If you like to hike in the back country this is an excellent park. It is secluded and once you go through the gates expect to travel around 67 miles to reach the campsites. I lost all phone service about 23 mi.es before reaching the gates with Verizon. They have I drive up sites, walk in sites,…

It's a Campsite

I came here on a recommendation based in two fellow campers I met from the Austin area while camping near Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Unfortunately, the day I arrived for my one night reservation it had rained all day and I arrived a little bit late. But I got my tent set up just in time and…

Beautiful and Rugged Dry Camping

I really enjoyed my short stay at this campground. There are no RV connections here so plan on a dry camp. This is not a very handicap friendly park as it is often under water when the river floods. Every morning the deer were grazing right next to my RV. The Hike to Gorman Falls is well worth it…

Research beforehand

Wish I had more time and did my research. If you opt for the hike in Primitive camping, bring a wagon or pack light. That 1.5 miles isn’t fun hauling gear. I was exhausted from the hike to my car to my camp spot carrying cooler and backpack. I was assuming the hike in were going to be extremely…

Great stop

This is a great place to stop and see the sights in the area. I had a reservation and asked to come in one day early. They said fine. Have a wide level concrete pad with full hookups. There is some cable tv cable there but we didn’t hook it up. You can have a choice of shade under large pecan trees…

Serene and rugged

This park has a variety of campsites available- hike in, walk in, and RV. Hike in sites are approximately a mile from parking and are primitive. The walk in sites are also primitive, but are a short walk from parking down a hill into a grassy field alongside the river. Some sites are tucked under…

Beautiful views, but here are a few thing you need to know

I went with a buddy and we stayed in site 16 in the primitive walk-in site.  It was a gorgeous site right on the Colorado river.  The thing I didn't realize was that in the primitive walk-in site you are in a field, with not really any privacy from any other campers.  If you are thinking that you…
